Statement from CareSouth Medical and Dental regarding J&J COVID-19 Vaccine
BATON ROUGE (Apr. 13, 2021) —
In light of the recent decision by the CDC and the FDA to pause the use of the Johnson and Johnson COVID-19 vaccine due to concerns about blood clots, CareSouth Medical and Dental will not administer the J&J vaccine at its Community Vaccine Event on Friday, April 16. Instead, we will be administering the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine at the event.
The event will go on as scheduled – from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. at our Baton Rouge Clinic, 3140 Florida St. We will be vaccinating 200 people. Slots are still available by appointment only call (225) 650-2000.
“With patient safety being our number one concern, we will adhere to the recommendation from the CDC and the FDA,” said CareSouth CEO Matthew Valliere. “We will continue to be a resource to anyone seeking a COVID-19 vaccination.”
